Once you get to Manly Beach, do walk over to the Ocean side of town, turn right and follow the path heading south for about 20 mins and you will come to this quaint little beach. The day we were there, we saw children taking...More
We started our snorkel from Shelly Beach. The under water eco system was abundant with beautiful sea grasses and a variety of fish. Visibility was excellent and the water was calm. The highlights was seeing 3 Blue Gropers ! We snorkelled for a good 1.5...More
Great for swimming and snorkelling in the clear water. Gentle surf and good views back towards Manly surf beach. There is a good walk around the sea shore from the Manly Surf Life Saving club house to the beach.
Pristine area. We walked from the Q Station, through the bush land and entered into the upper car park. We then walked to Manly and Queenscliffe by the water. There are coffee shops and eateries along the way.
As a local we often visit Shelly beach. You can access the beach by walking past Manly Surf Club and around along the path. I highly recommend this - it’s a nice walk with spectacular views of the beaches. If you prefer not to walk...More
Just a possibly 15-20min walk from Manly beach itself, it is a lovely beach tucked away, but filled with people because it is simply a stunning beach with a stunning view.
Many eateries nearby and toilet facilities.
Nice place for the kids and for relaxation....More

150 people in one group is a lot, I am presuming buses, the car park allows drop it ft but I don't think there is designated bus space. The grassed area would be nice for a large group and the small beach is suitable for children.
The Boathouse cafe is large but wouldn't be able to sit you all at once. I would definitely phone them at Moby Dicks at Whale Beach 02 99745440 and discuss the arrangements with the Boathouse Group management. They don't have phones at Shelley Beach!!!!
There is a kiosk for take away coffees etc but again for a group this big I think you would be best to phone and tell them of your visit so they can have sufficient staff,
Enjoy, it is a great spot!
